Carl Ericsson, lumberjack in Cadillac abt 1888
Posted by: Brenda Ericsson (ID *****6379) Date: May 16, 2005 at 16:18:30

One of my husband's ancestors, Carl Eric Ericsson, b. in 1868 in Sweden, immigrated to Cadillac, MI, around 1887. He worked as a lumberjack. We think he might have left there around 1889. Are there any directories or other documents that may verify his living in Cadillac? His names were spelled so many different ways, but he seemed to use Charles, Charley and Carl as a given name, and Erickson, Eriksson, Erikson, and Ericson as well as Ericsson as surnames.

Were a lot of Swedes coming to Cadillac around that time?

Thanks,
Brenda
